It is never too soon to start planning for the holidays and there are numerous ways that the Mabopane Foundation can make this an easier process and more fun for you.:
1. Between now and the first part of December when the Mission House closes until January, you will have 4 more weekends to shop: October 8-9; October 29-30; November 12-13; and November 26-27 which is our year-end clearance and half-price sale on all Thanksgiving and Christmas merchandise.
- You can save yourself the hassle of filling out a paper check, purchasing a stamp, and driving to the post office to mail it. AND, if you donate on a recurring basis, you won’t have to rely on your memory when it is time to send another donation. It is also a big time-saver to the financial assistant, bookkeeper, and treasurer who work to keep the books balanced;
- Transaction fees are less expensive in the long run. Credit and debit card transactions are most expensive. Paper checks have the lowest transaction cost but end up costing Mabopane Foundation more through time;
- Using an ACH payment system reduces human error.
Vanco is our ACH payment processor and offers a safe and secure way to send a onetime ACH donation or schedule a recurring gift. Please feel free to speak with Mabopane’s treasurer, Marjorie Morris, if you have any questions. Marjorie may be reached at 919-608-2553.
